- Acclimation period: 14th March 2007 – 18th March 2007. Acclimatization: Under laboratory conditions after health examination. Only animals without any visual signs of illness were used for the study.

ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONS
Standard Laboratory Conditions
- Temperature (°C): Air-conditioned with ranges for room temperature 17-23°C
- Humidity (%):relative humidity 30-70%
(Room temperature and humidity were monitored continuously and values outside of these ranges may have occasionally occurred, usually following room cleaning. These transient variations are considered not to have any influence on the study and, therefore, these data are not reported but are retained at RCC).
- Air changes (per hr): approximately 10-15 air changes per hour
- Photoperiod (hrs dark / hrs light): automatically controlled light cycle of 12 hours light and 12 hours dark. Music was played during the daytime light period.

Test system

Type of coverage:
semiocclusive
Preparation of test site:
shaved
Vehicle:
other: Purified Water.
Controls:
no
Amount / concentration applied:
500 mgTEST MATERIAL
- Amount(s) applied (volume or weight with unit): On the day of treatment, 0.5 g of FP-100 was placed on a surgical gauze patch (ca. 2.5 cm x 2.5 cm). This gauze patch was applied to the intact skin of the clipped area. The patch was covered with a semi-occlusive dressing. The dressing was wrapped around the abdomen and anchored with tape.
Duration of treatment / exposure:
4 h
Observation period:
72 hours
Number of animals:
3
Details on study design:
TEST SITE
- Area of exposure: Left flank
- % coverage: approximately 100 cm2 (10cm x 10 cm)
- Type of wrap if used: Semi-occlusive dressing was wrapped around the abdomen and anchored with tape.

REMOVAL OF TEST SUBSTANCE
- Washing (if done): The dressing was removed and the skin was flushed with lukewarm tap water to clean the application site so that any reactions (erythema) were clearly visible at that time.
- Time after start of exposure: The duration of treatment was 4 hours.

SCORING SYSTEM: The skin reaction was assessed according to the numerical scoring system listed in the Commission Directive 2004/73/EC, April 29, 2004.

Irritant / corrosive response data:
IRRITATION: The test item did not elicit any skin reactions at the application site of any animal at any of the observation times (all scores 0). The individual mean score for erythema/eschar and oedema for each of the three animals was therefore 0.

CORROSION: Neither alterations of the treated skin were observed nor were corrosive effects evident on the skin.
Other effects:
No abnormalities were observed during the testing/observation period.VIABILITY/MORTALITY/CLINICAL SIGNS: No clinical signs of systemic toxicity were observed in the animals during the study and no mortality occurred.

COLORATION: No staining produced by the test item of the treated skin was observed.

BODY WEIGHTS
The body weights of all rabbits were considered to be within the normal range of variability.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Interpretation of results:
other: not classified
Conclusions:
Based upon the referred classification criteria (Commission Directive 2001/59/EC of August 2001), FP-100 is considered to be “not irritating” to rabbit skin.
Executive summary:

The primary skin irritation potential of FP-100 was investigated according to OECD test guideline no. 404. The test item was applied by topical semi-occlusive application of 0.5 g to the intact left flank of each of three young adult New Zealand White rabbits. The duration of treatment was four hours. The scoring of skin reactions was performed 1, 24, 48 and 72 hours after removal of the dressing.

 

The test item did not elicit any skin reactions at the application site of any animal at any of the observation times (all scores 0). The individual mean score for erythema/eschar and oedema for each of the three animals was therefore 0.

 

The test item caused no staining of the treated skin. No corrosive effects were noted on the treated skin of any animal at any of the measuring intervals and no clinical signs were observed.

Based upon the referred classification criteria (Commission Directive 2001/59/EC of August 2001), FP-100 is considered to be “not irritating” to rabbit skin.
